Hi all,

I need to install Gretl on computers used by various universitaries courses: there is the necessity to
have more versions of gretl (1.6.x, 1.7.x) on the
same PC.

I have seen that gretl register some informations
in the Windows Registry, using the same name from
version to version, so I cannot installa different
versions.

Is it possible to have each version of gretl
use a registry key including its version number?
(or other solutions to have the same result?)

thanks

    Are you sure you need different version of gretl on the same computer?

    If you can tell us why that seems desirable, perhaps we can suggest
    an alternative way of achieving what you want.

    A workaround: you can run various virtual machines side by side with different gretl versions inside. (using for example qemu or VMware player or others, all of which are free as in beer)

    Apart from that, if the anonymous reporter doesn't answer, this will be closed eventually. (just a warning at this stage)

    thanks,

    Ok, more than a month without reaction so I'm closing this. (Reopening is always possible.)

    thanks,
